From Now On is based on the hugely popular film The Greatest Showman. The 2018 Golden Globe-nominated movie about the founder and stars of the Barnum & Bailey Circus is ideal for Lenten study of Christian themes of hope, redemption and new life. The five-week course offers discussion points, biblical reflections and prayers based on short film excerpts.

The Art of Lent is a delightful book and describes and interprets a series of paintings for each day of Lent. Artists often address subjects that our culture seeks to avoid, and Sister Wendy’s brilliant and perceptive reflections will help you to read these paintings with a more discerning eye, and encounter deeper levels of spiritual meaning than may at first appear. We offer this course in tribute to her, after her death earlier this year.
